Jacob Today

These are the pictures I took of Jacob today. He will be 9 months old in 2 days. He has a smile that just brings a smile to your own face. Cute gap between his front teeth. He has 6 teeth now! And the most beautiful big blue eyes. He is my little sweetie. Isn't he darling? He is so busy. Crawling everywhere. Pulling himself up on everything.

I'm Back!

One of my many goals this year, was to start updating the blog again. I saw a friend of mine who turned her blog into a book. There is this program/website that will print and bind your blog for you. That inspired me! That is the perfect solution to my scrapbooking problem. ;) So here I am in March, starting the blog. I have no idea where to start, so I guess I will just start off where I left off. Jacob.

Jacob Ver Groves

He's Here!
Jacob was born Saturday, June 6th at 7:07pm.
8 lbs 3 oz and 21 inches long.
He is so little I can't believe it. I love it when he opens his eyes and looks at me. He has been perfect so far. Sleeps and eats and never cries. I hope that stays, but I know I may be just dreaming. :) And let's just let me dream okay. :)
He has lots of dark hair, with an old man hair line. :) Not a lot of hair on top of his head. :) He has super long fingers and feet with long skinny toes. He is really ticklish too. I think he is beginning to look more like Emma, just some features we can remember from her, but he is his own little guy. It is going to be exciting to watch.
The delivery went really well. So much better than Emma's. Not that I loved every moment, but it was good. I went really quickly and I only threw up 3 times. :) It only took 2 pushes and he was out. Amazing.
Emma is the proudest big sister ever!!! She was so excited to come up to the hospital and see him and "hold him". I hope the newness wears off a little, becuase the poor guy is going to be mauled! :) She just stood at the window as the were cleaning him up and watched him with her nose pressed right against the glass.
Daddy is one proud dad and loves having a little boy to hold. This morning at 5am we couldn't get him to wake up to eat, so we just touched every little part of his body and checked him all out. I loved touching his soft skin, it was amazing to just look at him in the quiet of the morning and marvel at his perfectness. After rubbing him down for a hour he finally woke up and ate. He was just so content and peaceful, we loved it! Much different than our vocal, active 3 year old! :)

Kyle got his Mission Call!!!!

Kyle got his mission call yesterday!!! I know!!!!!!
We all got together last night to open it!
He is going to the Knoxville, Tennessee USA Mission and reports on June 24th. He is really excited and I am so proud of him. He is such a great little brother. It has been so fun to watch him grow the past year or so.
Congrats Kyle!!!

Before - opening the call!
After the call!!! Yea!!!

Emma got to hold her little cousin Dimitri. (more than once) She loved it! She was all over him! "I want to hold that baby!" She would tell me. Poor guy! :) I can't wait for her little brother to come. It is going to be so fun!
Eric and Stephanie closed on their new house yesterday too! It was a big day! Congrats guys! AND Stephanie got into the WSU Dental Hygiene Program last week! SO AWESOME!!

Emma's First Hair Cut

Yesterday we got Emma's hair cut for the first time.
It was a hard decision to make, but her curls weren't so curly anymore and it was getting so hard to comb because it was so long. She asked our neighbor who cuts hair to do it for her and was so excited, so I just went with it. It turned out so cute. She isn't my baby anymore that is for sure, and now her baby blonde curly locks are gone too. :)

Emma before her hair cut!
See how long it is!? All her little blonde bottoms are going to be gone!

Getting her hair cut! She held still as well as a 3 year old does. )
Delena cutting Emma's hair! Thanks Delena!
After! I know it doesn't look much different, but it looks so much cleaner! Daddy didn't want too much cut off, and I still wanted to do cute things with it too. But here she is!

Happy St. Patrick's Day and Emma Updates

Here is my little Emma enjoying her Green Pancakes and Green Eggs and Green Grapes in her somewhat green shirt. :0) We don't have a lot of green in her wardrobe I found out this morning. What a fun day! :)

Last night for our FHE activity we pulled out the butterfly kite Emma got for her Birthday from Trevor and let it fly. She loved it! It is a pretty cool kite. Love this time of year! It is finally starting to feel like spring! Yea! I even have one little yellow crocus that has bloomed in my flower garden, now that is hope! :)

The other day Emma brought some playdough into me in the computer room to "show" me. She had made a face with her playdough. I don't know if someone else had helped her and it was still in the can, but I was pretty impressed. And she was pretty proud. She layed it all out perfectly for me to see. I have a feeling Aunt Alissa helped her do this. :)

Here is my little girl with her backpack on. This was a great $4 investment! (Love Target clearance) :) She is so excited to go to Preschool in fall now that she is "three". She puts all her valuable toys - the ones she doesn't like to share, of course, inside and then tells me she is going to school and walks around the house with it on. So cute! Oh, and notice the balloon tied to the top of the backpack. Another treasure she has to take with her wherever she goes. :)


My friend April is having a boutique at her home on Friday, April 3rd. She is so creative and knows a lot of creative people, it is going to be really fun to come and browse. She even convinced me to put a couple of things in the boutique to sell.

First Trip to the Dentist

Emma had her first Dentist appointment this week. We went on Monday and she couldn't have been better! She loved to get her teeth "tickled" and all clean from "sugar bugs!". She got to watch The Incredibles in the chair while they did it and she was so good. I was so proud of her. Her happy personality came out and everyone there thought she was a darling, smart and polite little girl. Little do they know... :) The Sleeping "Loody" toothbrush was also an added bonus, plus she got a bouncy ball for being good.

First trip to the dentist tooth brush and all!

Emma being silly when I was trying to get another picture of her and her toothbrush.

Look at those clean white teeth! She thinks she is so funny! :)
